3 • THE BASIC PROCESS

3 • THE BASIC PROCESS PANEL Data modules Data modules are the set of objects in the spreadsheet view of the model that define the characteristics of various process elements, such as resources and queues. Attribute module DESCRIPTION This data module is used to define an attribute’s dimension, data type and initial value(s). An attribute is a characteristic of all entities created, but with a specific value that can differ from one entity to another. Attributes can be referenced in other modules (for example, the Decide module), can be reassigned a new value with the Assign module, and can be used in any expression. Attribute values are unique for each entity, as compared to Variables which are global to the simulation module. There are three methods for manually editing the Initial Values of an Attribute module: Using the standard spreadsheet interface. In the module spreadsheet, rightclick on the Initial Values cell and select the Edit via spreadsheet menu item. The values for two-dimensional arrays should be entered one column at a time. Array elements not explicitly assigned are assumed to have the last entered value. Using the module dialog box. In the module spreadsheet, right-click on any cell and select the Edit via dialog menu item. The values for two-dimensional arrays should be entered one column at a time. Array elements not explicitly assigned are assumed to have the last entered value. Using the two-dimensional (2-D) spreadsheet interface. In the module spreadsheet, click on the Initial Values cell. TYPICAL USES • Due date of an order (entity) • Priority of an order (entity) • Color of a part (entity) 43

GETTING STARTED WITH ARENA PROMPTS Prompt Name Rows Columns Data Type Initial Values Initial Value Description The unique name of the attribute being defined. Number of rows in a one- or two-dimensional attribute. Number of columns in a two-dimensional attribute. The data type of the values stored in the attribute. Valid types are Real and String. The default type is Real. Lists the initial value or values of the attribute. You can assign new values to the attribute by using the Assign module. Entity attribute value when entity is created and enters the system. Entity module DESCRIPTION This data module defines the various entity types and their initial picture values in a simulation. Initial costing information and holding costs are also defined for the entity. TYPICAL USES • Items being produced or assembled (parts, pallets) • Documents (forms, e-mails, faxes, reports) • People moving through a process (customers, callers) PROMPTS Prompt Entity Type Initial Picture Holding Cost/Hour Description The name of the entity type being defined. This name must be unique. Graphical representation of the entity at the start of the simulation. This value can be changed during the simulation using the Assign module. Hourly cost of processing the entity through the system. This cost is incurred when the entity is anywhere in the system. 44
